The 8-bit release of FIFA International Soccer (FIFA インターナショナルサッカー), is a football game released as part of the long-running FIFA series, for the Sega Game Gear between 1994 and 1995. A Sega Master System conversion was released by Tectoy exclusively in Brazil, in October 1996.

This particular release often causes confusion as, despite its looks, it is not a port of the 1993 Sega Mega Drive game, FIFA International Soccer. Also, though a working North American title is thought to have been FIFA Soccer 95, it is not a port of the Mega Drive's FIFA Soccer 95 either, being its own distinct, albeit similar, release in its own right. Though the basis for the game is still credited to Extended Play Productions, the majority of the work for this version was carried out by Tiertex, to be published by Electronic Arts.
